Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip from the Republic of Korea: Extension of the Time Limit for the Preliminary Results of the 2007/2008 Administrative Review, 8054 [E9-3791]

Download as PDF 8054 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 34 / Monday, February 23, 2009 / Notices date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Ajubesteel withdrew its request for a review on January 13, 2009, which is within the 60–day deadline. Therefore, the Department is rescinding this new shipper review of Ajubesteel. Notification jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES As the Department is rescinding this antidumping duty new shipper review, normally, the all–others rate in effect at the time of entry, 4.8 percent ad valorem, would be assessed on all exports of circular welded non–alloy steel pipe from the Republic of Korea by Ajubesteel entered, or withdrawn, from warehouse for consumption during the period of review (November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008). However, Ajubesteel’s shipments are subject to an administrative review of the order on circular welded non–alloy steel pipe from the Republic of Korea, covering the same period. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 79055 (December 24, 2008). Because the sale(s) from this new shipper review also fall within the period of review of the administrative review, the Department will not issue assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at this time. Upon the completion of the November 1, 2007, through October 31, 2008, administrative review, the Department will issue assessment instructions to CBP as appropriate. This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO material or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanctions. This new shipper rescission and notice are published in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: February 12, 2009. John M.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 5, 1991, the Department of Commerce (Department) published 
in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order on polyethylene 
terephthalate film, sheet, and strip (PET film) from the Republic of 
Korea (``Korea''). See Antidumping Duty Order and Amendment to Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Polyethylene 
Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip from the Republic of Korea, 56 FR 
25669 (June 5, 1991). The Department received timely requests from 
Kolon Industries Inc. (Kolon) and from DuPont Teijin Films, Mitsubishi 
Polyester Film, Inc., and Toray Plastics America Inc. (collectively, 
the petitioners), in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2), for an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on PET film from 
Korea covering Kolon's sales for the period October 2, 2007, through 
May 31, 2008. On July 30, 2008, the Department initiated an 
administrative review with respect to Kolon. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for 
Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Administrative Review, 73 FR 44220 
(July 30, 2008).
    The deadline for completion of the preliminary results in this 
administrative review is currently March 2, 2009.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) require the Department to issue the 
preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after 
the last day of the anniversary month of the order or suspension 
agreement for which the administrative review was requested, and the 
final results of the review within 120 days after the date on which the 
notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal 
Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not 
practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) allow the Department 
to extend the 245-day period to 365 days and the 120-day period to 180 
days.
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h), 
we determine that it is not practicable to complete this administrative 
review within the statutory time limit of 245 days. The Department 
requires additional time to analyze Kolon's questionnaire responses, 
and issue supplemental questionnaires. In particular, there are complex 
issues concerning Kolon's reported cost of production and U.S. sales 
that the Department requires additional time to analyze. Therefore, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213(h)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for the 
completion of these preliminary results by 120 days. Therefore, the new 
deadline for completion of this review is June 30, 2009. The final 
results, in turn, will be due 120 days after the date of issuance of 
the preliminary results, unless extended.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.
